Living my best frugal life.

Pane Rustica Due opens soon in Armature Works

Who doesn’t love hot, fresh out the oven baked goods in the morning with a cup of coffee or tea? Local bakery Pane Rustica is celebrating their 20th anniversary this year and doing something a bit different. In a couple weeks, Kevin and Karyn Kruszewski open their second location in Armature Works named Pane Rustica Due. They’ll be taking over the same booth previously used by Metropolitan Ministries’ Inside the Box concept.

Pane Rustica Due has the same baked goods, sandwiches, and pastas they’re known for. The small bakery won’t compete with any of the other concepts within Armature Works so it works out for everyone. One thing that enticed the Kruszewski’s is the community support around the food hall so they knew it was the best place for another location.

I talked to Kevin and Karyn about Pane Rustica Due for a Creative Loafing interview and here’s a taste of what they said:

“In honor of celebrating their 20th anniversary, local bakery Pane Rustica is expanding to a second location, named Pane Rustica Due, within Armature Works

The eatery will be taking over the booth which previously housed Metropolitan Ministries’ Inside the Box concept.

Co-owners Karyn and Kevin Kruszewski saw the growth and opportunity within the food hall and wanted in.

“We saw what they’re doing out there and it’s really impressive plus it’s been embraced by the community. When Armature Works came along, we thought it would be a great thing to be part of,” Karyn says. 

The duo started working on the expansion process last year after Kevin was making a delivery to Armature Works vendor Astro Ice Cream Co.

“I was delivering cookies and brownies when I bumped into Chas and Frank. I told them how impressed I was of their success and they wanted to make something happen,” Kevin explains.”

Make sure you stop by when it opens soon and grab some cookies and croissants. Read the rest of their interview here. PHOTO COURTESY OF PANE RUSTICA
